Global Warming Fear-Mongering

Last night, Sun News aired a documentary by Ann McElhinney and Phalim McAleer called Not Evil, Just Wrong - The True Cost of Global Warming Hysteria.

Well worth watching. It shows how the film by Al Gore has been used to form the minds of young children, something that will be difficult to undo. My husband, a geologist, does not deny the possibility of global warming, but what he does see as dangerous is the politicization of science. Never before have the findings of science been used to activate a whole group of people in a political way. As the film shows, this began with the Rachel Carson book "The Silent Spring" and has been fanned into a religion with the Al Gore film An Inconvenient Truth.

What I found particularly disturbing is the segment on malaria in Africa and how the banning of DDT use (which was a direct consequence of Carson's book) has led to the death of 30 million African children.

You can watch the film in its entirety here.

I was thinking about global warming the other day and wondered if the opening up of previously uninhabitable areas of land (for eg., in canada) could actually lead to the "discovery" of really good farm land, not yet drained by centuries of agriculture, virgin land, in a sense. Ask dad about this. Because, wouldn't that be a good thing?

Actually the film maker made the point that it is cold that is the enemy of man, not heat.
And he did suggest that an increase in global temperatures would improve life for a lot of people.
